it was amazing
Recommended for: Everyone

Anyone who wonders why so many people from Syria to Ras-al-Khaima hate Americans should read this book. About a village on the Arabian Gulf. They live simply and in tune with their land. Then one day their sheik sells them out to these big, sweaty, pink guys who arrive with kooky machines. Cultural mayhem ensues. Displacement, bewilderment, traditions and families torn asunder.
